 Islamic Lecture & Fundraising Iftar

 


             Islamic Lecture: "Sadaqah Jariyah"
               by Br. Nurdeen Lawal
                                         
Jazakumullahukhairan to our sponsors, parents, staff, students, and friends of UAIS for making the Islamic Lecture and Fundraising Iftar a success! 

We raised $5,000 from the auction, and a generous donor matched our fundraising collection, then doubled the amount to $10,000. This brings our collection to $15,000. Allahu akbar!

A special thanks to our guest speaker, Br. Nurdeen Lawal, who inspired us to give sadaqah jariyah, for the sake of Allah.  May Allah (swt) reward our collective effort with increased iman and taqwa, and a focused desire to increase beneficial knowledge to please Him.

The Prophet (saw) said, 
"O Son of Adam, if you spend from that extra you have been given (beyond your basic needs), it will be much better for you. If you withhold it, it will be bad for you. There is no blame upon you if you have just what is sufficient for your needs, but know that the upper hand (which gives in charity) is better than the lower hand.

self-discipline, judgment, and manners.

guiding a child’s development. No profanity or fighting will be tolerated in the camp. No put downs,

keep your words encouraging and respect the property of others. Respect and obey all recreation

staff and volunteers. Parents will be considered if the child becomes unruly during camp. Parents must

be willing to come and get their children if asked to do so by staff.  Staff will work with parents to

establish consistency for each child. Parents will be kept informed of problems should arise.

 

The following are general expectation of all student:

  1. Listen and follow directions the FIRST time given.

All children are expected to be abiding by rules and regulations of day camp. In the event of

unacceptable behavior, children will be issued a verbal warning with clearly stated expectations.

Attempts will always be made to redirect a child’s behavior to a more suitable activity. If a child

continues the unacceptable behavior, an incident report) is filled out by the child describing the

behavior and signed by the parent, meeting with the child and parent at dismissal as a last resort.

Extreme incidents may require immediate dismissal without prior notice. Each situation is unique,

but we will always try to be fair and consistent.

 

 

Three incident reports issued in a week will result in dismissal from the session and or future sessions.

Refunds WILL NOT be issued for children dismissed due to behavior. It is parents obligations and

responsibility to inform the coordinator, if your child has any conditions which may affect him/her with

the day-to-day activities of camp (this includes hyperactive disorders) This must be specifically

noted on your child’s admission form of emergency card. Failure to do so may result in child’s

dismissal.

set up a time for a longer conversation, please call the coordinator, and we would be happy to arrange

a time. Weekly calendars will have a listing of activities, including projects and on/off-site activities.

Slight modifications may be necessary due to unforeseen events. Important messages for parents will

be posted on the camp board.
